ExecuJet MRO Services Europe (ExecuJet), a wholly owned subsidiary of Dassault Aviation, has appointed Nadia Coetzee as General Manager of its MRO facility at Brussels International Airport. Coetzee will focus on expanding support to customers including the growth of its AOG support business. 

Coetzee was previously based at ExecuJet’s global headquarters in Lanseria, near Johannesburg, in South Africa where she was the supervisor in charge of the company’s technical services department. In that role she managed all aspects of aircraft maintenance projects. 

Putting AOG aircraft quickly back into service is highly valued by customers and is a business we know well,” said Coetzee. “It helps build loyalty and leads to repeat inspection and service business.” 

ExecuJet MRO Services Europe is part of Dassault Aviation’s Maintenance Control Centre (MCC). The Brussels facility has responded to AOGs throughout Europe and Africa. “We’re qualified and certified to respond to AOGs anywhere in the world, depending on the aircraft type and registration,” says Coetzee

Coetzee was born in South Africa and has a degree in business and financial management from Nelson Mandala University in Port Elizabeth, South Africa’s Eastern Cape region. 

Approximately a third of ExecuJet MRO Services Europe’s workforce are women; well above the industry average for the aviation MRO industry. 

Christophe De Coppel, Regional VP Europe at ExecuJet MRO Services, says: “Nadia’s appointment is a testament to our commitment to promoting female talent from within ExecuJet and from within the aviation industry, including to senior leadership roles.”
